Kansas City, Missouri Executive Search Recruiters

In its early years, Kansas City was a trading and commercial center for the Kansas-Missouri region. The Kansas and Missouri Rivers helped facilitate trade throughout the city. Later, the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad linked the city to the rest of the country by rail. Also, the Kansas City Southern Railway links KC to cities all along the Gulf of Mexico. Kansas City never took off as a huge manufacturing center. However, due to its location in the center of the country, the city is essential for the distribution of agricultural and consumer goods to the entire US. Today the city’s economy is very diverse. These are some of Kansas City’s major companies and industries.

Kansas City, Missouri Executive Search City Snapshot:


Welcome to Kansas City; “KCMO,” the “City of Fountains,” and “Paris of the Plains.” Contrary to its name, Kansas City is not in Kansas but rather on the Missouri side of the Kansas-Missouri border. Kansas City claims to have the second-most fountains of any city in the world, behind Rome, Italy. The fountains behind the center field fence at the Kansas City Royals’ Kauffman Stadium are among the largest privately funded fountains in the world. Some notable people to come out of the Kansas City area include: actor Ed Asner, pianist Burt Bacharach, professional baseball player George Brett, psychic Sylvia Browne, actor Don Cheadle, actress Joan Crawford, author William Nolan, President Harry S. Truman, professional baseball player Smoky Joe Wood, and Walt Disney.

The French explorer Étienne de Veniard, Sieur de Bourgmont was the first European to settle along the Missouri River in present day Kansas City. In 1714 Bourgmont wrote detailed descriptions of the land and the nearby Native American tribes. A few years later, French cartographer Guillaume Delisle used the descriptions to make the first map of the Missouri area. Throughout the 1700s many French traders travelled along the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. The convergence of these two rivers in present day Kansas City was a logical place for many of these fur traders to settle.

In 1821, explorer and fur trader François Gesseau Chouteau moved to the region and founded Chouteau’s Landing. Chouteau traveled throughout the Kansas territory and traded with Native American tribes. Soon, Chouteau’s Landing became a center of commerce for European trappers and Native Americans. As the US expanded westward, more people moved out to the Missouri region. In 1834, John McCoy founded Westport Landing near the Missouri River. The area became the launching point for westward-venturing pioneers. The Santa Fe, California, and Oregon Trails all originated in Missouri’s Jackson County. In 1853, the area’s residents created Kansas City. Both François Gesseau Chouteau and John McCoy are considered the “fathers” of Kansas City.

Kansas City was instrumental in fanning the flames that led to the American Civil War. In the late 1850s, Kansas Territory was known as “Bleeding Kansas.” At the time, Kansas was about to become a state. Due to the 1954 Kansas-Nebraska Act, new states would decide to be slave states or free states by popular sovereignty of the territory’s citizens. Many pro-slavery “Border Ruffians” from Kansas City moved into Kansas to influence to state to accept slavery. Tensions grew high and people eventually started killing each other.

Since its economy was based on commercial trading rather than slave-based manufacturing, Kansas City was not crushed after the Civil War. In the late 1800s the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad brought in waves of people to the city. Kansas City continued to boom until the 1930s when the Depression slowed down the city’s population growth. After WWII suburban area around the city began popping up.

Population: 459,787
